I tried to add a debian based link to the dnf repository list. I couldn't find an option to remove non-http links from the repo list because they aren't actually added but every time I type in any dnf command I get this error:

Repository u'something': Error parsing config: Error parsing "baseurl = u'ppa:something'": URL must be http, ftp, file or https not "ppa"

I'm using fedora 22 64-bit if that matters. To reproduce this error, just type:

sudo dnf add-repo ppa:something
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete

Someone on the reddit forums answered this for me. Putting here for others to reference.

As it seems dnf isn't fully functional for managing repos yet. The repos are saved in /etc/yum.repos.d/. Simply delete the repo.

sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/something.repo
